Concrete Beach Brewery to Release Mango Gose in Cans

concretemangogosecanConcrete Beach Brewery (Miami, Florida) recently announced that Mango Gose will officially return on July 1 as the latest release from the brewery’s Limited Series, and this time around it will be available in 16 oz. cans.

Drawing inspiration from “the mountains of tropical fruit sold by street cart vendors” during the summer months in Miami, Concrete Beach Brewery decided to put some mangos to use by developing its Mango Gose.  Starting with a base of a German-style wheat ale brewed with coriander and salt, this beer then gets its tropical fruit infusion by way of mangos that were donated by Miami-based EcoRipe Tropicals – a leading importer and distributor of quality tropical fruits and vegetables.  Finished off with a little lime zest, the 4.2% ABV Mango Gose comes together to be “a refreshingly pleasant summer beer with a local twist.”

“Last year we received great feedback about our Mango Gose, so I’m excited to bring it back for a second summer and give people the chance to purchase it in cans as well,” said Marco Reyna, head brewer for Concrete Beach. “Goses are traditionally on the sour side with a touch of salinity, so between that and the fresh fruit notes, it’s perfect for summer!”

Mango Gose will make its first official appearance at the 25th International Mango Festival on July 1st and 2nd at the Fairchild Botanical Gardens.  During the event, fans will be able to sample the beer for the first time and meet & greet with representatives from both Concrete Beach and EcoRipe Tropicals.  Shortly after the Mango Festival, this limited release offering will be available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans found exclusively at the brewery.  You will also be able to find Mango Gose on draft at select bars and restaurants located around Miami.  Prost!

Concrete Beach Brewery Releases Havana Lager in Cans

ConcreteBeachHavanapourConcrete Beach Brewery (Miami, Florida) recently announced that it has expanded its portfolio of packaged beers by now offering Havana Lager year-round in 12 oz. cans.

Released as Concrete Beach Brewery’s newest Year-Round offering, Havana Lager is a celebration of “both Miami’s prevalent and colorful Cuban culture and the rich brewing history of Vienna style lagers in Cuba.”  Sunburst orange in color, this “suave”, 5.2% ABV Lager has “toasted malt characters [that] envelop the palate and give the beer a slight malty sweetness that finishes crisp and clean.”

“Havana Lager is going to be a great year-round beer for South Florida,” said Marco Reyna, head brewer for Concrete Beach. “Not only does it fit our fans’ desires for an easy drinking lager, it’s also a nod to the German brewers that settled in Cuba and other Latin and South American countries and brought their brewing traditions that still influence the drinking culture today.”

Havana Lager is available now in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft.  You can expect to find this new Year-Round brew available at craft beer establishments located in Concrete Beach Brewery’s distribution area in Southern Florida.  Prost!

Concrete Beach Brewery Steps Up Their IPA Game by Packaging TangeRica and Más Hops

concretebeachlogoConcrete Beach Brewery (Miami, Florida) recently announced that TangeRica Wheat IPA and Más Hops Double IPA will soon be hitting shelves as their newest packaged offerings.

The first new IPA to find its way into Concrete Beach Brewery’s portfolio of packaged beers is TangeRica Wheat India Pale Ale. This variant of the brewery’s Year-Round Rica Wheat IPA ups the level of citrus refreshment by incorporating tangerine peel and juice into its recipe.  This full-bodied, 6.5% ABV Wheat IPA is a ” little drier and crisper, and bursting with . . . notes of citron blossom, grapefruit peel, orange, and lemongrass, while a wheat-heavy malt bill and subtle hop bitterness round out the experience.”  TangeRica Wheat IPA will be available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles beginning on March 6.  Once released, you can expect to find this one at grocery and liquor stores located in Concrete Beach’s distribution area of South Florida.

“It was very fun testing out recipes for TangeRica, as we were trying to find the perfect balance of acidity, bitterness and flavor from the fruit and hop profile,” said Marco Reyna, head brewer for Concrete Beach. “I think we hit the nail right on the head with this one, and I’m excited to introduce it to the South Florida market!”

Looking for an even bigger punch of hops?  Well, Concrete Beach also has you covered in that department with the limited release of Más Hops in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans.  First tapped as a Seasonal offering in 2015, this Double India Pale Ale was so popular with local hopheads that it has since earned itself a permanent tap handle in the brewery’s Social Hall.  This comes as no surprise when you consider that Más Hops lives up to its name by featuring copious amounts of Warrior, Chinook, Citra and Centennial hops.  Wonderfully balanced by a firm malty base, this offering proves to be a “hugely aromatic and flavorful IPA . . . [that] boasts a bouquet of pine and citrus that sets your palate up to appreciate the flavors of orange and grapefruit rind.” Packaged in 12 oz. cans, this limited release of Más Hops Double IPA will also see availability in South Florida beginning on March 6.

If you are down in South Florida and hoppy brews are on your mind, just make a mental note now that 6-packs of TangeRica Wheat IPA and Más Hops Double IPA are headed your way next week.  Prost!
